FOR: People working actively on the complex issues of inclusion and diversity in communities, workplaces and schools will want to attend this event. This Institute is for Thinkers and Doers. - for people who know there are no easy answers and who are seeking new ways of thinking and acting. This will be a unique adventure in building a learning community together. The faculty see themselves as a jazz combo who have a definite theme and a flair for improvisation - harmonizing with the participants.

WHERE: The Assembly Hall - Humber College - Lakeshore Campus

The Assembly Hall is on the shores of Lake Ontario on the West side of Toronto. Toronto is known as one of the most multicultural cities in the world - a city rich in diversity, social activism, and rich in culture. We know you will enjoy the Institute, and all that Toronto offers: great theatre, jazz, the Toronto Islands (great roller-blading and walking), an incredible array of affordable restaurants, the Blue Jays, the Raptors, the people.

OUTCOMES: Guarantees are hard to come by, but if you show up, be present, tell the truth and let go of preconceived luggage you will leave with a:

  • network of new colleagues and friends
  • knowledge, skills and tools for change
  • an individual PATH or MAP- your own unique plan of action to get you in motion in your own place of work/life (if you want one)

    OUR AIM: is that we all celebrate our learning together and leave:
  • renewed
  • refreshed &
  • re-energized to continue our work

    PATH & MAPS are creative planning tools - that utilize Graphic Facilitation to collect information and develop positive future plans. MAPS focuses on gathering information for planning - based on the Story (history) of a person or organization. PATH goes directly to the future and implements backwards planning to create a step-by-step path to a desirable future.
